"I Love Carelink."

A 2008 construction accident left David Brown paralyzed from the waist down. After living in a nursing home for seven years, at age 53, wheelchair-bound David just wanted to live in an apartment on his own. His caregivers talked to David about subscribing to the CareLink service to ensure that help would be only a button push away should the need arise.

David said, “I love it and am happy I signed up with CareLink”.

New Study Launched to Document Home Care's Actual Impact on Healthcare Outcomes and Costs

The program, titled "The Intervention in-Home Care to Improve Outcomes," or simply "In-Home," will test a large scale randomized intervention aimed at preventing hospitalizations, improving health outcomes, and lowering Medicare spending among private-pay home care recipients.
